About the Story

A fan game for Rusty Quill's The Magnus Archives podcast.

If a gunshot wound won't keep you in this hospital room, then certainly you're not going to stop at a little game of murder?

A brief tale of a criminal escaping a burning hospital, December 13, 2022

This is another entry in the series of games based on archetypes from the Magnus institute. This one is based on the Desolation, which is associated with loss and fire.

Thematically, it works well; it features a burning hospital and a health point meter, and has some complex decisions in regards to human life.

Emotionally, a lot of it didn't land with me; the PC is unequivocally bad, so it sets you up to play as a bad guy, but then presents moral decisions which would be completely straightforward for a villain in distress.

And the 'overarching plot' section at the end felt a bit like an exposition dump, one that is well-needed but could have been dragged out a bit more.
